First of all, there is no proof that he's actually living separated.
I just have his word and that of his sister (which I weight high because we're friends).
Decide wisely because a lot of heartache is at stake.
Hi there, I feel like I'm to old to ask such silly questions but I somehow got into this weird situation and am already too much into this guy to get out of it again. I have been dating a seperated man for 2 month now and it's kind of complicated.
He was, after all, juggling a soon-to-be ex-wife with a new lover.
I was newly single and in my mid-twenties, and after weeks of being told that it was time to put myself back out there, I decided that there was no harm in using Tinder. His marriage was over, and it had been over for some time, even before the separation, he said. We shared shreds of information, the things that make us who we are. Me: living together with a long-term partner whom I loved but didn't see myself with in the future.
That was my first mistake, especially since I hadn't been in the dating game since Tinder even existed. He also said his mind was made up and he'd moved on. We connected and spent a few hours sipping beer and chatting. Him: married, seperated from the woman he had been with for more than eight years, with whom he shared a son. He also loved making plans that he had no intention of following through on. Maybe it was the night that he texted me, "Home with the ex and baby tonight. It was the way I wondered if they were sharing a bed.
What you have to keep in mind is that separated is still married until the divorce is finalised and that means that there’s likely to be emotional as well as legal ties.
It would be handy if we could avoid the vulnerability that comes with doing the due diligence and taking appropriate action where needed.
